Bad news for McAuliffe? Huge majority of exit poll respondents think parents should have a significant say in school curriculum

As the final hours of voting wind down in Virginia, the initial round of exit polling contains at least one piece of ominous news for Democratic Candidate Terry McAuliffe. According to an NBC News exit poll, an overwhelming majority of Virginia voters believe that parents should have “A lot” (53%) or “some” (31%) say in their school curriculum. Only 10% of respondents said that parents should have “not much” say, and only 3% said that parents should “not at all” have a say in their school’s curriculum.

These results may spell trouble for McAuliffe, because parental control over their children’s education has become perhaps the most galvanizing issue in the Virginia gubernatorial race. Parental confrontations with a number of Virginia school boards, including in Loudon County, have grabbed national news attention and have focused on issues like Critical Race Theory, graphic sexual content found in libraries, and one parent who angrily confronted the Loudon County School board when his daughter was sexually assaulted in a Loudon County School restroom.
